The Personal Downside to Landslides

With almost as much rainfall in April, May and June of 2011, as this region receives in an entire year, many hillsides have been affected by landslides.

The damages to private properties are perhaps the most complicated to address. Landslides in places like East Price Hill, Northside, Mt. Auburn, North Avondale, and East Walnut Hills are problematic. It’s difficult, if not impossible, to seek economic relief from those individuals whose decisions or actions are responsible for creating these landslides. Nature has rules. Man breaks them.

Message from the Director

From the time I was a young child, I have always enjoyed our hillsides. Whether it was feeling their imposing grandeur as they tower over the Ohio River and downtown basin, or taking in distant views from their commanding overlooks, I believe the hillsides are a dramatic part of our landscape. It is my sincere pleasure to serve an organization like The Hillside Trust that advocates the thoughtful use and preservation of this wonderful natural feature.
